RE and Jigsaw
We are a Church of England school and therefore the teaching of RE is very important to us. We use the South Gloucestershire agreed syllabus and are committed to develop our pupils understanding of theology. We use this resource to answer BIG questions about the world faiths today, including a thorough teaching of Christianity and what life is like for a Christian today.
Our RE curriculum has been created through a combination of South Gloucestershire planning and the Understanding Christianity documents. It has been developed to ensure that children have opportunities to explore and discover a range of religions whilst maintaining and reinforcing our Christian values.
In addition to this we use the JIGSAW resource to help us teach pupils about the development of themselves as people. This programme is taught weekly to each class. It follows a clear learning sequence which includes a weekly mindfulness element.
